In Response to Re: Under cooked/baked/fried dough:
What is a cronut? I take it that it is some kind of donut?

A "cronut" is a donut made with croissant dough. It is cut like a donut and fried.
You end up with flaky layers of the croissant but it has been fried so you get the crispy of the donut. The one I had was dusted with cinnamon sugar but I have soon glazed ones as well.
I was not overly impressed with it. It is possible that the one I had was not done correctly as it did seem a bit greasy.
Over all not my most favorite. Again if I am going for fried dough I am happy with an Elephant ear or I will stick with a nice light buttery flaky croissant.
